About Annette

I started teaching music to children in 1988, and have been independently employed as a piano teacher since that time. I am very proficient in the English language, particularly writing, reading and spelling. I have a gift of engaging a student and getting them to respond to the task at hand in a way that is fun for them.
I have an excellent command of the English language and can very effectively teach reading, comprehension and how to communicate successfully through writing and proper speaking. My musical experience enables me include delving into the arts and songwriting, if needed!
I am used to traveling to homes to teach, as that has been my regular routine in giving piano lessons for the past 10 years. I have a strong ability to establish a rapport with kids right away, and I quickly engage them enthusiastically in the learning process. I expect success from my students, and they achieve success!
I am a natural born teacher.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with your child (ages 6 to 17) and help them to get excited about excelling!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Piano

I have been a piano teacher for 25 years. I have taught literally hundreds of children to play. I travel to people's homes to teach. I attended Berklee College of Music in the late 1980's and majored in songwriting and composition. I lived in Nashville, TN where I taught piano and wrote songs. I presently live in Gloucester, MA. I have a gift for keeping the student interested and engaged. The lessons are well thought out and focused on reading music. I always give a clearly written homework assignment each week, which includes music theory. I make it fun, and that is what makes me successful. References can be provided.
